A Happy Ending!

2 December, 2019

This is one of those cases where there was a simple answer to a seemingly complex problem. “Jenny from Calm Healthy Horses saved my beautiful horses life.I honestly can’t thank her enough for what she has done.10 months ago my horse got extremely sick, swollen sheath, his legs, stomach, chest were so swollen skin was hanging.He was lumpy, scabby and all his hair had fallen out, he was so itchy he would run around the paddock after me in hope I would scratch him. He was absolutely miserable my poor boy, it broke my heartI spent thousands of dollars on…

Lameness, spooky and facial crests

1 August, 2019

Shardy is an 8yr old Purebred Egyptian Arab. His owner, Jen was having no end of trouble. His issues included: Frequent lameness and struggling to get up hills He became spooky He rubbed his nose a lot, especially when out riding, stopping on the track to rub his nose on his leg. Muzzle twitching Then he suddenly also developed the facial crests Jen had been feeding other ‘oxalate’ products for 2 years with zero results. A very basic feed was recommended (oaten chaff, soaked beet and/or copra, 2 tablespoons salt daily, grassy hay) with + Supreme Vit & Min….

Big Head disease recovery

30 September, 2015

Nutritional Secondary Hyperparathyroidism Recovery In December 2010 my horse was diagnosed with signs of big head disease. The swellings on each side of her head were extremely large and appeared over a matter of weeks. She was reluctant to go forward and spent hours each day standing around with an extremely depressed look in her eye. Her coat was dull. When she was ridden it was almost impossible to get her to canter and when she did she had very short, choppy strides. Apart from the facial swellings the other signs I mentioned appeared twelve months before she was diagnosed,…

Lethargic and Dragging feet

24 September, 2015

One day I noticed my horse had suddenly become very stiff, and was dragging his front legs and appeared quite lethargic. I knew something was wrong as he was normally very forward moving and this particular day, he just seemed really tired. I had only had Chief for about 5 or 6 months but he was always energetic. I had noticed he was spooking at things a lot more frequently than he had when I first got him, but didn’t make any connection with this at the time. I took him to our vet who said he was most likely tying-up so we treated…

Suspected Fractured Pelvis Recovery

24 September, 2015

Our 15 year old stock horse developed what we thought was arthritis around 3 months after we purchased him (he had been fully vet checked prior to purchase and passed with flying colors). He was intermittently lame which would come and go randomly and he would often drag his hind feet when walking and struggled walking down steep hills. Flash was a successful show jumper with his previous owner and we eventually had to retire him from jumping a year later as we didn’t want to put any more strain on his joints and he was struggling to lift his legs high enough to clear…

Spooking and Shying Violently

24 September, 2015

I have been using the whole ProvideIt Plan for over a year now with amazing results and would like to share the experience. I had searched for the right horse for months and a friend found him in the Eastern States for me and I was assured that he was very quiet and would suit me well. He had come from fairly drought conditions, and he was fine for a short while until my green pasture hit his system. He then became unmanageable for me, both to handle and ride, shying violently and becoming highly reactive to stimuli in his…

Sore Back and Nipping

24 September, 2015

I bought Duke in early January, 2010. When I went to try him he was a calm, unflappable horse who seemed to take everything in his stride. My mother and I brought him home and put him in a large paddock with lots of feed because he was a little skinny. The first few times I rode him, he was just as good as when I looked at him but he soon deteriorated and every time I caught him, he would try to bite me. One time he even reared up and started lashing out at me with his front…

Leg Splints Disappeared

24 September, 2015

Barry was broken-in in March, 2009, at four years of age and quietly worked through the winter, attending some winter clinics. After shedding the winter woollies and going from the ugly duck to a beautiful swan, he was shown three times in August for a promising start with three Champions and one Supreme. Things looked good for his newcomer season. On the 1st of September things started to crash with Barry starting to get a bit scratchy, a subtle lameness that would seem worse on corners and not real evident which leg it was. We decided to put a set…

Suspected Fractured Pelvis or Sacroiliac Injury

24 September, 2015

Great news! The horse with the suspected fractured pelvis is back to normal! I know a lot of people will bethinking ‘How can this be?’ Actually it is not at all difficult to understand when you realise how much mineral balances have to do with nerve and muscle function. When Susan bought ‘Millie’, a Sir Tristram bred TB in March of 2007 for her daughter Carmel, she was everything she was wanting for her next horse. Calm and quiet, with a fantastic temperament, she had already proven herself as a Show Hunter finishing 6th nationally on the 2006 Circuit. She took to…

Equimin Supplement

Raised on healthy food and Equimin supplement and looking stunning now. Wanikya – Before ‘After photo’ was taken 6 months after starting on Equimin Supplement daily. C.P Melbourne, VIC


8 September, 2015

“My stock horse stallion sliced his front foot and was in a plaster cast for 7 weeks. The Vet said initially it may not heal up enough for proper use of his foot. When the cast was removed, his foot was still good and 5 & 1/2 months later he was galloping about the paddock with no sign of lameness and is back serving mares. The vet was amazed at the healing, & that the results were so good. I fed him NATRAKELP LIQUID SEAWEED 2 x daily of 2 tablespoons each feed then reduced to 1 tablespoon daily after…

Equine Herbs Consultation

8 September, 2015

“I am just sending this to say a great big thank you to Greenpet for the wonderful advice and service. (Naturopathic consultation) I turned to natural therapies as a last resort to helping my daughters nine year old Australian Pony. Things were looking very grim. A couple of years ago he received a kick to the stifle from our other horse whilst playing. After consultations with the vets without much help – except for them wanting me to spend lots of money on really expensive tests. Things were going along quite well until he foundered on us in the spring…

Arthritis relief for Horse

8 September, 2015

‘My 16 yr old horse has arthritis in both hocks and a tendency to put his back out a lot. I was told to retire him to trail riding duties as his working life was apparently over, he only dose prelim novice dressage, I wasn’t going to subject him to needles in the hocks or expensive medicines that MIGHT work. I purchased supplements recommended by you & have been using them for 4 weeks and the change in my horse’s movement and attitude towards his work is unreal. He actually uses his hocks now the stiffness is basically gone and since he…

Horse Goes Crazy!

8 September, 2015

After losing my pony a few years ago I acquired ‘Dollie’, an Anglo Arab filly. At first she didn’t trust people and was very scatty but with in 6 months she became almost bomb proof in the paddocks and you could do anything with her. In fact, a learner was practicing on her, picking out her feet. She had been saddled and bridled, and she was so good everyone was amazed. ‘Dollie’ was a pleasure to have around right up until we moved her to more permanent grazing. Something sent her CRAZY! It was like someone had put a different…

Unpredictable, Dangerous Horse Saved

8 September, 2015

We have had Noah ten months. His previous owner had bought him for his wife as a novice rider’s horse. They gave me Noah with great caution as he had bucked, reared and succeeded in getting them off. He refused to float for them. He acted like a monster lived in that float so it took me two hours to load him when I first got him. Now loading was one area he has learnt to master since being with me but other behaviours stuck. Noah has always been a bucker, rearer, overexcited, spooky, tense, bolshy horse with a head…

Stiff, Lame and Spooky Horse

8 September, 2015

I fell for my Palomino Quarter Horse on our first ride. He was 14 years old and only 3 months prior to my owning him he had lived in Queensland. He was bred in South East Queensland and was broken in and trained to be a Reiner. His manners were impeccable but he was a very nervous horse and his shying was more like a very, very fast spin. I have owned him for nearly 4 years now and in that time we have had our issues (big time). Most of our troubles have been with his body, joints and…

Scour Testimonial

8 September, 2015

Scour Testimonial: “My Quarter Horse gelding has scoured for most of his life and no change of diet, Vet, Nutritionist or Herbalist has helped. Most foods and all supplements upset his gut and it has been a nightmare to work out exactly what the problem has been over the past 7 years. When he scoured, his behaviour got progressively worse and he became explosive, grumpy, unpredictable and could be quite dangerous to be around. When he wasn’t scouring he was awesome. I read Jenny Paterson’s book ‘The Key To Calm, Healthy Horses’ and realized it may be the rye grass he grazed that…

Dangerous Horse Now Calm

8 September, 2015

This is a picture taken on Tue 12th May 2009 of 63 year old Ian Fergusson and his 10 yr old half Irish gelding. Up until about 6 weeks ago Monkey was one of those horses people categorise as ‘down-right dangerous’!! ‘Ferg’, well known in North Canterbury (NZ) has ridden all his life and was master of the Brackenfield Hunt for about 10 years. He acquired ‘Monkey’ as an ‘unbroken’ 4 year old with the idea of breaking him in and using him for general farm work, hunting and the odd show. Ferg thought Monkey had a lot of potential…

Belle’s Ross River Virus Recovery

8 September, 2015

In March 2009 our mare became very ill, legs swollen and stiff, and she could barely walk. She was diagnosed by blood test to have Ross River Virus … a bad case of it. Our vet said her recovery would likely be 18 months. I contacted Greenpet on the advice of a friend, we had an on-line consultation and placed an order. While we were waiting for the tonic and supplements to arrive, Belle worsened, and at one point my husband and I talked about euthanising her she was so bad. She developed Stress Founder, and now could not walk at…

Darcy’s Eye Infection

7 September, 2015

Image taken 3 June 2011, of ‘Darcy’s’ left eye. I came out to find this eye fully closed, unable to open it with swelling on upper lid. I bathed it with Greenpet Herbal Eye Wash and sprayed Greenpet Oxyeze Skin Spray. Later that day, I repeated this bathing and his eye was open slightly so I could then spray the Oxyeze into his eye, (from a distance) to get a fine mist into the eye. The next morning I repeated this as his eye was almost fully open with only a slight discharge in the corner. By the end of the next day…

Sarcoids Testimonial

8 September, 2013

“In April of ’98, a friend gave me some salve…to remove some sarcoids on two of my horses. One on the nostril of one horse, and two on the under side of the barrel on the other horse. The nostril sarcoid was gone in three days, and the two barrel sarcoids were gone in ten days. A year later the horse with the barrel sarcoids developed yet another lesion on the opposite side of his mid line, and again treated it and it was totally gone in a week.”


We contacted you after reading your article on ‘Flower remedies’ in an issue of ‘Living Now’. You made a Flower remedy up for our totally STRESSED OUT 4 year old Blue Heeler Chloe. We are now writing to say thank you, thank you, thank you!! What a difference it has made. Chloe can now do things that she has never been able to do and she is so much happier- needless to say and so are we. Once again we are delighted to express our gratitude, thank you!!

Using Meadowsweet for equine gut ulcers with several other herbs. Within first week his scours stopped and generally so much happier. Great quality product with great service. Am already a returning customer and plan to continue. Thank you Greenpet for your awesome products!!

I love the Greenpet Vitagest Supplement. I’ve used it for years for my dogs. I’ve even taken it myself. Recently my boy has been having some tummy issues and I had run out of this product. I ordered on Monday and received it in Perth on the Wednesday which is fantastic. This is so soothing for dogs with IBS, pancreatitis or any stomach issues. I mix it with warm water and let it sit for a bit so it becomes thick then add it to his wet food. Love Greenpet ❤️

Floyd has always suffered rashes, itchy skin & yeast infections his whole life. After eliminating the recommended triggers he has been excellent. So far he hasn’t needed his monthly cyopoint injection & no signs of any rashes. After trying so many other things, the Biocompatibility Hair Test has been fantastic. Wish I had done this ages ago. Totally recommend.


Nelson has been looking so much better yesterday and mostly back to his calm self.

He seems to have settled well on the diet of wheaten chaff, speedi beet, supreme, ship shape, cen oil, salt and graze ezy. The occasional calming herb tonic from you guys gets thrown in too.

Thanks so much for all your advice! Hoping to start riding soon as his issues are looking nearly completely gone


I am very happy with the Neem Concentrate and have come to rely on it to deter mites from budgies, washing cages and spraying it on cages, perches and a light spray on the birds too. Also dusting Diatomaceous Earth over everything to kill mites it really gives protection to the birds.
